I have all my patients on neurontin to help prevent itching and tingling as the nerves come back. This is a common feeling after surgery . I suggest you speak to your physician. Best, Dr. Emer.
Consider wearing a pair of silk boxer shorts under your garment. I've found this to be most comfortable for sensitive or allergic skin.Regards,

Thank you for your question. You may have allergy to material in the garment. Please contact your surgeon for assessment.
Hi there and thanks for posting.You need to go back and see your surgeon for a full assessment.It could be normal, it could be an allergy it is just not possible to determine without seeing and examining you.I hope it all resolves quickly for you
Thank you for asking about your liposuction and BBL.
- You are likely to be allergic to the elastic or other material in your garment.
- OTC allergy meds will not help.
- The itching will continue until there is no contact with skin and garment.
- Take off your garment, shower and put on a long cotton T-shirt and cotton panties under the garment.
- If the itching continues, contact your surgeon for further instructions or a new garment.
- You should not need to be on narcotics for itching - narcotics can also cause severe itching.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
It is common and temporary. You might consider whether or not you may be allergic/sensitive to the garment/binder. Ask your surgeon if you can remove and wash it. Try again. If recurs, ask if you can leave it off for a few hours. This trial & error approach may answer your question.
Very doubtful it was the lipo. Take off the garment, stop the pain or all pills, see a dermatologist for rash/hive issues.
Thank you for your question.I am sorry to hear about the discomfort that you are experiencing, but I want to assure you that the itching that you describe is fairly common following a liposuction procedure. While this sensation typically resolves as you continue to heal and recover, I can appreciate how uncomfortable it can be. Sometimes the friction generated between the skin and the compression garment can cause this itching and sometimes it can be attributed to the temporary disruption of nerve endings from liposuction. In either scenario, this itching is temporary and should resolve quite quickly. I would recommend following up with your operating surgeon to discuss your concerns and recovery experience thus far and defer to your doctors recommendations. Some patients do experience relief by removing their compression garment alone, while others may require OTC anti-histamines, such as Benadryl. I hope you find this helpful and best of luck on your recovery!
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your itching symptoms after your procedure. This sensation is not uncommon after liposuction and resolves spontaneously as your results mature. Allow yourself more time to heal but you can improve your symptoms with Benadryl or Vistaril, the latter requiring a prescription by your doctor. Hope this helps.
